1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
